Cherryh's books almost always start out slow but I haven't run across one yet that wasn't worth the read. Another good series is the Chanur series. "The Pride of Chanur" was the book that got me hooked on C.J. Cherryh's fiction. Her "Fortress" series is also quite good. She's one of the few autors I've read who can do SciFi and Fantasy and do them both well.
